Why did you choose WIH/Brown OB/GYN?

Because of the people! Brown is known as one of the happiest programs in the country, and I wholeheartedly believe that reputation is well-earned! It was very important to me to be at a program that had a lot of clinical and surgical volume, but also feel well supported and have fun at work. I think that a medium sized program in a stand-alone women’s hospital was the perfect fit for me, and the fantastic people who practice at Women & Infants make it an amazing place to work.

 What are your interests within OB/GYN?

 What is your favorite thing to do in Providence or Rhode Island?

Go out to dinner or to the beach!

 Where do you live?

One piece of advice for candidates:

Ask tough questions! The answers that people have can sometimes surprise you, and asking those uncomfortable questions can help you gain insight as to whether or not you could really be happy (and yourself!) at a program.
